Fashion Sense?

Although I love watching the pomp and ceremony of anything that the Royal Family of Britain does, I was not really planning to watch William and Catherine's wedding yesterday. But it is not unusual for me to wake up in the middle of the night, so it worked out that I tuned in just in time to see two horribly dressed young women getting out of a car and entering the church. Turns out that they were Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. I know the Brits are crazy about head gear, but these were unfortunate choices in my opinion!


Luckily, Catherine had MUCH better taste and looked beautiful. She probably would have looked good in anything, but I am glad that she didn't go with some slinky, "Hollywood-looking" dress. Not that she cares what I think. . .

So, back to fashion. Apparently I have none. I look at fashion magazines and designer collections and mostly I just want to laugh. I think about The Devil Wears Prada and I wonder how much of what I wear is actually affected by these horrific trends. I have a few "trendy" items in my closet, but mostly it boils down to jeans with a loose bottom hem, straight easy-to-wear skirts, round neck t-shirts, turtleneck sweaters, and lots of cardigans and jackets. So. . . maybe the colors are affected season to season, but truthfully, not much else!

And that's ok by me. . .

Ha ha -- I totally agree, Kaye. My first thought when I saw those two young women was, "Wicked Stepsisters, or what?" :D Too funny. Incidentally, I cracked up that this post followed your purple hair post. BWAHAHAHAHA! You are so fun! :D LOVE YOU!
